The former Wallabies winger Digby Ioane has signed a two year deal with the Crusaders.
The New Zealand-born, Australian-raised winger already has played 86 Super rugby matches, mostly for the Queensland Reds between 2008-2013.
Ioane, who's played 35 tests, has since played for the Stade Francais in France and is about to return to his second second season with the Honda Heat in Japan.
"I have had a great time playing in France and Japan, but the opportunity to be part of a New
Zealand Super Rugby team is too good to pass up," said Ioane.
The recenly appointed Crusaders Coach Scott Robertson said Ioane was a key signing for the team.
"Digby is a massive talent, who we believe still has plenty of top class playing years left in him despite
his experience," he said.
"We also know he will make a huge contribution off the field, with his energy, great character and good humour."
